Hi there. Looking at a 1988 R-60. I cant seem to find anything about the specs googling. Would anyone care to share a few, like what processor and what options were available? Did it have the retrun to thresh door on the tailing?
I would really like to find a site that has all the model changes of the gleaner over the years, is there one, and where might it be?
It would have a highly refined P1 processor (same basic design as N6-7s). Anything you find on hyperizng a N6 would apply to this R60. '90 and newer machines have P3 processor. It would have Deutz motor with 228hp. Main important options were tailings return to cylinder, chopper, and varible corn head drive. Very nice machines for the day.
You'll have to check to see it is dumping returns onto feed chain. This would not of been standard with all versions. These days you can flip a lever to switch from rethreshing the tailings to just recleaning the tailings. That is if you have the tailing return to cylinder option. With the old machines (P1 systems) you can install trough under overfeed auger to just reclean the tailings instead of rethresh. Again that is if you have the return to cylinder option.
